|Before proceeding, you have to store your
file.cas on the hard disk of the "local" computer from where you
will launch Fluent.
You will have to create a file containing the list of the computers which will make the calculations. Note that Fluent has to be launched from the directory where this file is stored.
First run the fluent command in Unix window, but without mentionning 2d or 3d, this will be asked later on. When the Fluent window prompts; select in the toolbar File, then Run...:
A window like this should appear :
Here you can select the 3D calculation (1),
(2D is default setting). Then click on parallel
(2). After this you have to tell Fluent which computer it has
to use. This is done with a file (in this presentation: hosts) where
a listing of the computer is put. Be aware that the order of the computers
is important to Fluent if you want to skip a computer for any reason...
Don't forget now to load the case to process : File/Read/Case... where the file.cas/msh is located. If the case is not partitioned for the parallel computation (it should done when you load your case...), go to Parallel/Partition and select Auto partiton to share the job between each computer.
Then check your boundaries conditions, initialize the
solver (Solve/Initialize) and start the iteration. (Solve/Iterate)
